Bush and Putin Censor Themselves

Thursday, 03 March 2005 12:00 AM

Whenever the Pentagon discusses China's military "modernization," the Pentagon describes China's conventional arms, including nuclear weapons. Unfortunately, the "supreme leaders" of China are not the fools that the U.S. government, including the Pentagon, most members of the U.S. Congress and the mainstream media take them for. Between 1964 and the mid-1980s, China had over 40 nuclear tests and developed into a nuclear superpower. What next?

Nuclear weapons cannot be used for the annihilation of a nuclear country because of "mutual assured destruction." Even if the nuclear weapons of China destroyed all the residential areas of the United States, no nuclear weapons can destroy hidden enemy means of nuclear retaliation – submarines deep underwater with nuclear missiles aboard, bombers on duty high in the air with nuclear bombs aboard, and nuclear missiles deep underground. Hence China began in 1986 development in seven fields of post-nuclear superweapons capable of destroying the enemy means of nuclear retaliation.

The Pentagon and the entire U.S. military-political establishment of 2005 may be living in 1945. But the "supreme leaders" of China understand that now it is the year 2005, not 1945. That is, we are living geostrategically in the era of post-nuclear weapons, not nuclear weapons, which in 1945 destroyed two Japanese cities without any Japanese retaliation, but, on the contrary, with Japanese unconditional surrender to follow.

The Chinese use the word, translated by the medieval English word "mace," a club that could kill an enemy knight by breaking through his armor. Ironically, in the United States "Mace" became in 1968 a trademark denoting a spray that disables an opponent by making him unconscious.

How does Putin's Russia contribute to China's creation of the "mace"?

Before Dec. 13, 2004, China and Putin's Russia had been "strategic partners." On Dec. 13, 2004, they became allies, contemplating joint maneuvers this year. The gravest danger is not Putin's sales of weapons to China, but Chinese-Russian cooperation in the development of post-nuclear superweapons. Russia is (in population) a small country compared with China. But she has been more scientifically and technologically advanced in some new post-nuclear fields than any country of the West, including the United States.

True, one of my U.S. readers e-mailed to me that "Asian countries," such as Russia, Japan, and China, have been and will always be scientifically and technologically backward compared with "us, Americans." But this is nationalism, "patriotism," or racism, inherent to some members of any nation or tribe. Many Germans could not believe that Soviet Russia, where most villages had no running water, could build in 1942 more and better tanks than did Germany.

Here Barry asked me a very good question: "If China is so dangerous, why is Putin not afraid to maximize her military might?"

Hitler despised the science and technology of Soviet Russia. But he needed her raw materials, and Stalin supplied them under the Soviet-German pact. Why was not Stalin afraid to maximize Hitler's military might?

A document indicates that Stalin did not believe that Hitler would invade Russia even when Hitler's invasion had begun. Stalin's Foreign Minister, Vyacheslav Molotov, said sadly and bitterly to the German ambassador who "declared war": "What have we done to deserve it?"

Stalin believed that Hitler and he were allies and they would divide the world amicably – half of Europe and the United States would go to Hitler, and half to Stalin.

When China forces Putin's Russia to surrender or be destroyed by that same "mace" – post-nuclear weapons – Putin has helped to develop, Putin will possibly have a breakdown as did Stalin, unable even "to address the Soviet people" by radio for more than a week after the fatal night of June 22, 1941.

Now, what did Bush and Putin discuss?

The New York Times predicted through Reuters in its e-mail to e-readers: "In the meeting Bush is to press Putin on democracy in Russia. President Bush's advisers are concerned about moves by the Russian president which seem as backsliding on democracy."

Well, the prediction was wrong. In its e-mail the next day, the New York Times report of C.J. Chivers, "Bush and Putin Mute Differences, Latching On to the Affirmative," stated, "At least in public, the presidents muted Western concerns about the decline in the development of democracy in Russia."

Let us suppose that Putin will become the dictator of Russia. How will this change the mortal danger of China to the West? The dictator Stalin enhanced as much as he could the German dictator's might. Why cannot the dictator Putin enhance as much as he can the Chinese dictator's might?

Besides, Putin's Russia is not yet a dictatorship like that of post-1949 China. At the Bush-Putin news conference the Russian Commersant Daily correspondent said that as far as democracy is concerned, neither Russia nor the United States is at the level of the Netherlands. A Chinese correspondent could attack in this way the United States, but not China!

Many Americans believe that there are only two clear-cut kinds of countries in the world: "democracies" and "tyrannies." Saddam Hussein's Iraq was a tyranny, and now it is to be a democracy. The trouble is that it is likely to be a fundamentalist Shia theocracy, that is, a worse tyranny than was Saddam Hussein's Sunni oligarchy, oppressing Shia (and Kurds).

The political world map is far more complex than the democracy-versus-tyranny dichotomy. Nationally or internationally audible under French absolutism were thinkers who are venerated even today, 200 and 300 years later. On the other hand, even Louis XIV, eulogized by Voltaire, did not pose as a thinker. In the United States today, the only thinker, audible almost daily nationally and internationally, is the U.S. president, mostly repeating his speechwriters and advisers like Karl Rove.

Another spurious bone of contention at the Bratislava conference was Iran, where Russia is building a nuclear power plant. President Bush considers this a dangerous move since Iran can use the waste products of the plant to facilitate development of nuclear weapons. China tested its nuclear weapons for the first time in 1964, tested them over 40 times until the mid-1980s, and then began developing post-nuclear superweapons. Few Americans have even heard of that, but our president is worried about Iran.

Indeed, "weapons of mass destruction" were ascribed to Hussein's Iraq, and hence it was invaded to replace the "tyranny" with a "democracy." Only scientifically and technologically backward countries evoke indignation demanding an immediate invasion (especially if they are rich in oil), while China, a giant dictatorship, developing post-nuclear superweapons in seven fields since 1986 – today with Russia's help – was not even mentioned at the Bush-Putin news conference in Bratislava. Iran, not China, endangers the world!
